Do You Like Illustrated Books? Booking Through Thursday
Question of the Day. How do you feel about illustrations in your books? Graphs? Photos? Sketches?
For the most part, I like my imagination to run wild picturing the characters, settings, creatures, etc. in reading fiction. Though. I don't mind illustrations in books if they add value. Maps serve a great pupose in guiding me across the book's journeys. The black and white drawings in Pride and Prejudjice and Zombies were hilarious and added some much to the story!
Poetry is hard for me. Illustrations found in poetry titles sometimes assist me in getting the feeling and nuance of the words
Many nonfiction books require charts and graphs. Also, photos include in nonfiction titles grab me to be included in the story.
Of course, graphic novel, picture books, art books, and comic book are a given.
So, all in all, illustrations in fiction books -- mainly, no. Nonfiction -- mainly, yes.
What is your take?
